we have the reverse here.. there is a guy running a full tub/backhalf'd el camino, massive cowl, and HUGE hoosier slicks.. runs 14.5s all day long

there are a few sleepers, but not many..

i was kinda toying with the idea of putting a stock hood on mine and tucking the fuel pump up a bit higher to hide it, but i dunno yet

Theres not that many 8sec streeters around here >> There are plenty of 8 sec guys who will bring the car to a car show or meet a couple times a year though. Oldhead only one who drives an 8sec car to the track all the time lol Guys like me, vinny, wazslow etc.. put maybe 2000-3000 miles a year on our streeters. >>

The NHRA 135mph chute rule has been talked about for years now, (2003 it originally was supposed to change.) and supposedly in 09 they are going to start enforcing it. 135mph is a good starting point for chutes I think, especially those with stock brakes... I usually only pull it above 145 but a couple times at short tracks I sure didnt know if id make the last turnoff! I dont think many local tracks will break balls about it though on a test and tune or street night. Its only when there is a big event (sanctioning body race) that you will see them being strict about it. Mine as well bite the bullet at that point though, you might be satisfied with 135 now but then that gets boring and you'll want 155!!

It isnt cheap at all but it is relatively easy these days to have a 8-9sec streetcar that you can put a thousands of miles a year on.

And Capri Mike - everyone says N/A with a Hit ...until they drive a blower/turbo car!!! Same motor was in mine for a few years now before changing things. And not because anything broke, im still using the same exact shortblock/intake and not freshening just new heads and a couple little bolt on's lol

There are a lot of very fast street cars here in Chicago and some of the coin spent on them is unbelievable.
I figure I will have an advantage. I am starting with a car that weighs 2200lbs.

Problem is it is only a 2 seater and I want to street drive the hell out of it but I dont want to have to crawl through a jungle gym every time I get in and out. I am for safety but its one thing if it hinders the enjoyment of the car.

Oh I know I've driven his car a couple times...it's nasty for sure...

It just seems as if the blower car guys always have a ton of excuses... :-)
Belt slippage/breakage, heat soak, flexing brackets blah blah blah!

True True...

If I ever do something else it (a different car cause the Capri is done) it will have a turbo for sure...and probably only 4 cylinders!

Looks like you guys have a lot of fun in South Jersey. Nothing good like that happens up here. Watching those vids really makes me miss my 83 GT
